Emerald Ancestors has added an 1852 census of the Church of Ireland congregation of Christchurch, in central Belfast.

The record lists more than 4,000 names and notes all members within a household including children, along with age, relationship to the Head of Household and the street name or townland in which the family resided. Frequent annotations such as occupation are provided for some individuals.

Copies of the census extracts are available to subscribers through the Emerald Ancestors Look Up facility. They can also be found at PRONI, Document reference CR/1/13/D/1.

NOTE: Emerald Ancestors recently improved its Birth Records Search options. The database can now be searched using only the Mother's Maiden name.
